NBC will, not unexpectedly, milk the fall cycle finale of THE VOICE for all it’s worth.  The first part of the finale will be shortened to 90 minutes from its usual Monday 2 hours, airing December 17 from 8-9:30PM, so that the following half-hour can showcase a “preview” of 1600 PENN, the network’s big midseason sitcom (which officially launches Thursday Jan 10 at 9:30PM).  The second half of the Voice finale will be a 2-hour special on December 18, running 9-11PM.
